Ms. Emily Birge - Math, Science, & Social Studies
Welcome to 2nd Grade! My name is Emily Birge, and I will be your new Second grade Math, Science, and Social Studies teacher this year. I am ecstatic to begin my first year teaching adventure here at Hackberry Elementary.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University-Commerce in December 2019. My fiance's name is Benjamin and together we adopted a beautiful fluffy feline named Scruffy. On my free time I love playing disc golf and basketball. Little Elm has a ton of disc golf courses that Ben and I partake in, and we love being out in nature to do so. Another hobby of mine is watching/supporting the Dallas Stars hockey team (GO STARS!). If I'm not playing sports or watching hockey, I am usually binge watching Netflix on the couch with Scruffy in my pjs. Another fun fact about me is I come from a long line of teachers, and I couldn't be prouder to be following in their footsteps at such a wonderful school.
My Favorites: Color: Blue; Candy: Hersheys Chocolate; Drink: Dr. Pepper or strong Coffee; Shopping: Hobby Lobby, Target, Bath & Body Works; Candle Scent: Seasonal Smells, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Vanilla; Sports: Dallas Stars Hockey
